These are some seriously tough Scouts!

Ages 11, 12 and 13.

Here they are (along with Scouter Alan) taking a brief rest as they descend back down the mountain 7.5 kms. (3,500 ft. elevation change) Sunday morning with overflowing packs after a sub-zero weekend. In all, they logged over 25 kms. in the mountains in seriously difficult conditions. Unfortunately, due to those conditions, none of them got to bust out their ice axes and crampons and have a go at the glacier. Oh well, next time…

I couldn’t be prouder of these young guys!
